Watch the Whitefly Vlog above on how to kill whiteflies.
Corky’s Whitefly Control Service is designed specifically for Southern California properties, taking into consideration, property landscaping, weather, and seasonality of infestations. Whiteflies are a destructive plant pest and are vectors of a multitude of ornamental and crop plant diseases. Most importantly, they are a major food source for ants, spiders and other insects. That's why Corky’s Ultimate Pest Control Service also includes treatment to many of the migrating whitefly harborage areas such as ornamental plants, small trees including citrus and fruit trees and landscape shrubs.
Experts agree that the efforts to eliminate whiteflies will most likely be only about 70% effective. It is our commitment to provide timely and effect control for our customers, but without a regularly scheduled maintenance program, infestations are sure to reoccur, since whitefly migrate (fly in)
from neighboring properties.
Each property is unique and deserves the most uniquely devised treatment plan possible to control whitefly. We provide customized treatments
focused on the Whiteflies’ most desired plantings and harborage areas unique to your property. Here’s an overview of what you may expect our service to include.
Inspection: We perform a thorough inspection to determine the treatable plantings, the extent of the infestation and the number and timing of treatment applications needed to accomplish a successful service.
Landscape Treatment: Botanical or low-impact treatment products for the control of whiteflies are sprayed under the leaves of landscape plantings, targeting the aphids’ harborage areas.. This initial service may consist of 2 to 3 treatment applications (or more depending on the severity of the infestation), scheduled 14 days apart. Additional treatments are charged per application.
Recommendations: Your technician will make recommendations as to measures that will promote successful control of these pests on your property. The most important of which is to keep your plantings healthy. Stressed, sick and dying plants attract whitefly. The following should be accomplished before any service is performed in order to ensure a successful treatment. Other recommendations, to get rid of whiteflies specific to your property may be made at the time of service.
